Jaguars Postgame Quotes

Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Jack Del Rio, quarterback Byron Leftwich and running back Fred Taylor shared their thoughts with the media following the team's loss to the Colts in Indianapolis on Sunday.

HEAD COACH JACK DEL RIO

(general comments)
"It was a good, hard-fought football game out there. I tip my hat to the Colts. They were the better football team today. They held serve at home. We'll see them again later in the year. After what happened here, that will make that game even bigger. It was a good football game with a lot of energy put forth by both teams. If we continue to prepare the way we're preparing and compete the way we're competing, when we get to the end of the season, we're going to like the results. We're going to hold our heads high walking out of here."

(on the Colts punt return for a touchdown)
"There was a breakdown and there were a couple missed tackles there. The returner did a nice job."

(on the Colts touchdown pass from Peyton Manning to Dallas Clark)
"There was a miscommunication there. We played pretty good defense most of the way and unfortunately we let them have that one."

(on the Jaguars play offensively)
"We had some tremendous runs out there, we played with a great deal of energy and we caught the ball well. We did a lot of things well but we just ended up a little short in the point total for the amount of effort."

(on the game getting away)
"We lost and didn't make enough plays. We left a lot out there, but you can't look at it that way. We are a good football team, and we have to make sure things like that don't happen. They did happen. We have to man up and go to the next week."

QB-BYRON LEFTWICH

(on the division rivalry)
"You have to ask them (Colts). It is like they don't appreciate it, with some comments they made during the week. You know it is going to be a good football game every time we play because we have two good football teams playing each other. They ended out on top today."

(on time of possession 1st quarter)
"It was frustrating. We have to do a better job at doing something. We have to watch the film to see what really happened, but we have to do a better job. When you have the ball that much time, you have to come away with more than seven points."

RB-FRED TAYLOR

(on the game)
"We knew it was going be a dog fight. We prepared for that. We know we're going to have those types of games…The better team always gets the victory whether we like it or not. We understand what we did and we have to grow from within and this is where it starts. We missed a couple opportunities. We will just go back to the drawing board and get ready for the next team. They deserve all the credit."
